Title: Influence of Longitudinal Cracking Due to Reinforcement Corrosion on Characteristics of Reinforced Concrete Members
Author(s): Kiyoshi Okada, Kazuo KobayashiI, and Toyoaki Miyagawa
Publication: Structural Journal
Appears on pages(s): 134-140
Keywords: beams (supports); chlorides; concrete durability; corrosion; cracking (fracturing); deterioration; ductility; limit state design; nondestructive tests; patching; reinforced concrete; reinforcing steels; repairs; strength; Structural Research
Abstract:The results of an investigation taking into account longitudinal cracks due to reinforcement corrosion as the limit state in durability design are reported in the paper. First, an application of nondestructive methods for detecting the longitudinal cracks is examined. Then, the effects of various repair methods applied to the beams after longitudinal cracking and the fundamental structural behavior of reinforced concrete beams with longitudinal cracks are investigated.
